Going home… RODEO BLUES #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday @RebeccaJVickery

Grunge Background.Welcome to Snippet Sunday.

This week, I thought I'd give you a sneak peek of my upcoming release, RODEO BLUES!

If you're interested in last week's snippet of WANTED here you go: Chapter 4 Snippet 4

Snippet: Rodeo Blues, Chapter One

Tye has arrived home...

 

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

Tye Casper pulled his Ford pickup to the side of the road and glanced at the billboard welcoming him to the town of Skeeter Blue, Texas, and right next to the sign another one glittered with red, white, and blue lights announcing the town's annual event, the Cowboy Christmas in July Rodeo.

Rodeos were a big deal in Texas, and why wouldn't they be when they could trace their roots back to the Spanish missionaries, who'd taught the ranch hands the horsemanship they'd learned in Spain. The informal competition eventually turned into a multimillion-dollar sport, and you weren't a Texan if your city or town didn't hold at least one rodeo event a year. Skeeter Blue was no different, and their event lasted four days, featuring everything from topnotch rodeo events to pie eating contests, but he'd avoided this annual rodeo event for a good reason. But being stupid had finally caught up with him, and here he sat in his truck – about to either make the biggest mistake of his life or the very best one.

He pursed his lips and flicked his Stetson with his forefinger so it rested on the back of his head. A flood of emotions swept over him as he anticipated his reunion with the people he'd left behind in Skeeter Blue. Well, one woman in particular came to mind, Jolie Lockhart.

His fingers gripped the steering wheel as his thoughts of their possible reunion played out in his mind over and over again with alternate endings. None of them ended well.

************************************************************************************

Have you ever played out a meeting in your head, but when you actually see the person, it doesn't go as you rehearsed? lol

If you have the time, I would love it if you would help me out with Rodeo Blues' Thunderclap campaign. I promise, it is really easy to do. :) I need 100 supporters for it to work. I have 51! (At the time I created this post). More than halfway there! If I reach 100, I'm giving away $25 Gift card to one lucky supporter, too. So spread the word! https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/28996-cowboy-christmas-in-july

Thanks so much! Until next week, take care.

Blurb:

Eight Seconds to Lose the Girl…

One chance to win her back.

Tye Casper, a.k.a. the Ghost Rider and champion bull rider, should be the happiest cowboy alive, but when he left home ten years ago to make it big, he said goodbye to the only woman he has ever loved. He's had his eight seconds of glory, but without Jolie Lockhart by his side, the wins mean nothing.

He's been given an opportunity to return home to Skeeter Blue for one last rodeo. He believes fate has sent him there and he'll have a second chance with Jolie, but nothing goes as planned. He soon realizes staying seated on a bull for eight seconds may prove much simpler than winning Jolie's heart.

Supper’s Ready! WANTED #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday @RebeccaJVickery

Grunge Background.Welcome to Snippet Sunday.

We're continuing from where we left off last week. If you're interested, here's the link to last weeks snippet from WANTED:

Chapter 4 Snippet #1

Set up for this week: We're jumping ahead a few paragraphs in this snippet. JoBeth is behind bars and was asleep, but Jace woke her up.  It's late and he wants to go home for supper. He opens the cell door, but then halts when he realizes JoBeth seems frightened...

Jace Kelly's POV.

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

"Aren't you hungry?" he asked carefully. Her defensive stance made him wonder what abuse she'd endured at the hands of the deputies who brought her here.

Her brows drew together and she licked her lips before her eyes hardened with suspicion. "I don't see no tray with you."

"Well, no ma'am, I don't suppose you do. Supper is waiting for us back at the house."

"Your house?" she asked in disbelief.

Her look of surprise almost made him chuckle again, but then he realized this woman, this outlaw hadn't been treated with kindness. Of course she'd be suspicious of his actions. "I don't see the sense in traipsing all the way to my house and bringing you back your supper later when it tastes a whole lot better when it's nice and hot."

************************************************************************************
Jace wants to take her home for supper. Find out next week what JoBeth thinks of that.
Hope you enjoyed the snippet of WANTED.

Until next week, take care.

Wanted_2015_mediumAbout the Book:

Sheriff Jace Kelly's wife died birthing his remarkable daughter, Emma. She inherited the families' seer abilities. At six years old, she can't tell the difference between a vision and an ordinary dream. So Jace doesn't put much faith in Emma's recent premonition: marriage for him and a new mother for her.

When JoBeth Riley arrives, Emma is convinced she's the woman in her dream: dark hair, green eyes, and shamrocks in her pocket. There's one problem – she's the notorious outlaw, Baby Face Jo. Her stay in town is meant to keep Shane Maverick, the leader of the outlaw gang, from finding her before the authorities devise a plan to capture him.

JoBeth finds the Kellys a strange lot. A little girl, who believes her dreams are tales of the future and the rugged sheriff whose kindness proves a distraction. She's an outlaw, for heaven's sake, but Jace is bound and determined to steal her heart.
